Lasting from 1945 to 1975, the Vietnam War was the longest, most deadly conflict in post-1945 world history. It also precipitated America’s most profound political crisis since the Civil War. Vietnam’s legacy continues to haunt us: It frames the debate over American options in Iraq and still defines how we view government authority and public morality.

This course assesses the origins, strategy, and impact of America’s Vietnam venture: What were our goals? Why did America “lose”? And how, specifically, does Iraq compare to Vietnam? In short, this course analyzes Vietnam both as the most controversial foreign war in American history and as a guide to our evolving relation with the rest of the world.
